Seven years ago Rob McFarland was an IT consultant who had never been published. Now he’s one of Australia’s leading travel writers, with five writing awards including Australian Travel Writer of the Year. He’s proof that you don’t need to have studied journalism or worked on a newspaper to break into travel writing.
Rob is running an intensive two-day travel writing workshop for aspiring travel writers.
Most importantly, you’ll get detailed feedback on your writing during the course plus the opportunity to submit a second feature to be critiqued after the course has finished.
You’ll also join a network of course alumni who receive ongoing support via a dedicated Facebook group and have regular meetups.
